WEDDINGS

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life.  I am here to make sure you have one less thing to worry about.  Those moments that will be captured forever.  I offer full day coverage.  I make sure we get all those moments with your family & friends before I leave for the night.

My Style

My husband, Doug and I have been married for almost 9 years!!  I remember how excited I was to plan my wedding.  I wanted everything to be TEAL and Doug wanted to have Pizza for our wedding dinner, but my mom refused for that to happen. Here is a pro-tip for you: make your day about what you WANT not your parents!  

 

Finding a wedding photographer was tricky as a photographer myself!  My wedding photos are some of my most cherished photos as it is the last photos of my dad and I before he passed away.  I find myself as a photographer concentrating not only taking amazing photos of the two of you, but of your family. I can't tell you how many times I have had past couples express their appreciation for those last family photos of a loved one.    

I am a documenter and collector of moments.  That is my style. Your wedding day is about those memories you want to re-live.  

After 9 years of weddings under my belt, I know how much time we need for each section of the day.  I am here to set up a timeline that works for your wants throughout the day.  AND I'll make sure we are on time!  (I am always early for everything!) 

 

 I become one of your bridesmaids, sister, friend, a family member excited to see you walk down the aisle.  Yes, you may find me crying behind the camera during those sweet moments! (YEP, I'm a total SAP!)  It's why I love what I do.  

My motto #livewhatyoulove

"Stopping a moment from running away."
